My friend Lauren just launched a new website for her fashion label, Laurs Kemp. If you've followed this blog for a while you may remember me taking some photos of her collection back in 2011. Lauren has since moved from Arkansas to America's hippest city, Portland, where she has been working on a capsule collection titled L'Heure Magique which was inspired by the 1970s work of photographers Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton and the 1996 film The Craft.

I have always loved Lauren's designs and I'm so smitten with this batch as well. The simplicity of the silhouettes and the cool crescent moon prints are right up my alley. I love that she sent her work off to Brooklyn to be photographed by the talented Amber Mahoney and the gorgeous model/stylist Emily Theobald.

You can see more of the Laurs Kemp capsule collection lookbook here.

My friend Amber Taylor is a really great seamstress and designer who moved off to Nashville last year. The past two falls I've walked in a fashion show wearing her beautiful designs, but this year neither of us were home to take part in the festivities. Fortunately, she has put her time and talent into creating an Etsy shop where, instead of coming up with a full collection, she focuses on offering custom orders in a a few staple designs.

This makes me extremely happy because I was at a loss trying to figure out where to find a sturdy denim overall dress. It's like Amber took the design idea right out of my head, and I'm so happy she did! I'm pretty much in love.

My friend Heather and I got together one afternoon to capture a few shots of me wearing it.

I had an opportunity to work with my talented friends Katy and Stephanie again recently. They had a boudoir shoot in the works and when I overheard them talking about it I mentioned a few pieces of vintage lingerie I had been hoarding for a few years. The delicates were too beautiful to part with and I was elated to finely have an occasion to show them off.

I hope you like our work, we sure had a good time bringing it together. Stephanie tells me there are several more pictures that I haven't seen yet that she's just saving for a rainy day. I look forward to seeing them and sharing them here someday soon.
